Automobili Lamborghini has loaned its carbon fibre monocoque
rolling chassis, of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, to the European Patent
Office of Munich, Germany for a special event also attended by Luciano De Oto,
Head of Advanced Composite Research Center. This was stated in a press release
issued by Lamborghini.
The rolling chassis exhibition highlights the leading edge
position that Automobili Lamborghini holds in carbon fibre composite materials
technology, and is testimony to the many years of liaison between Lamborghini
and the European Patent Office (EPO).
The EPO is an intergovernmental organisation through which
Automobili Lamborghini has applied for numerous patents, including those
related to the production processes of carbon-based materials such as Forged
Composite,CarbonSkin, and CarbonFlex and other innovative technologies on the
Aventador LP 700-4.
The monocoque of the Lamborghini super sports car is
"single shell". Different to other solutions, it combines the
cockpit, floor, and roof of the car in a single structure, ensuring high torsional
stiffness and thus maximum performance in terms of dynamic behaviour and
passive safety. The monocoque module weighs only 147.5 kilograms.
Believe it or not, Automobili Lamborghini is the only
automotive manufacturer that manages the entire process of carbon fibre
machining internally: from the 3D design to the computerised simulation,
production, testing and quality control and repair service by Flying Doctors,
all taking place within an ultra-modern industrial process of the highest
